In Bhutan, there is a sense that time has stood still. Walking through the temples full of red-robed monks, or among chilli fields where farmers cut their crops by hand, feels as it has always been, unchanged by tourism or Western influence.
Full itineraries planned meticulously by English-speaking guides, ensure guests’ days are spent experiencing the very best of the country, whether it’s hiking to a mountaintop monastery or sampling ‘momos’ with the local villagers. At the end of the day, guests can unwind with all that COMO is known for – award-winning cuisine, powerful wellness, and a night slept well in a destination worth dreaming about.
COMO Bhutan’s six-night trip takes travellers to the heart of the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. From the gravity-defying Tiger’s Nest Monastery to the Temple of the Divine Madman, this trip combines spectacular drives, unique nature walks and fascinating monastery visits.
The journey deep into the kingdom’s heartland explores three important but distinctly different valleys: The Laya Valley (also known as the hidden paradise), the tropical Punakha Valley with its magnificent Dzongs, and the emerald Paro Valley, with rice paddies and ancient temples.
